Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay, in collaboration with school districts and local law enforcement agencies, has launched a new mentoring program called Bigs in Blue. Officers/deputies and non-sworn law enforcement personnel spend one-to-one time mentoring a child at a neighborhood school, for one hour a week. In addition to helping a child achieve academic success, the goal is to break down barriers and build trust between communities and law enforcement.
We are encouraged by the initial results of this program at the Tampa Police Department (stronger relationships, decrease in juvenile delinquency) and our goal is to expand this program throughout our seven-county service area. We believe these mentoring relationships will help change perceptions and bring communities together.
